Green Elf Trees – Delivering real Christmas trees and helping a charity of your choice!
Whilst we’re all looking for ways to be more sustainable, Christmas can put a bit of a dampener on those efforts.
All the plastic that we throw away at this time of year mostly ends up on landfills, and, our artificial Christmas trees have a carbon footprint measuring at around 40kg of CO2, 10 times greater than what a real tree would produce at disposal. If you’re wondering where you can get a real tree and help good causes at the same time, let us introduce you to Green Elf Trees!
This green initiative was started by a group of friends that also began PlantSaversUK, combatting the waste of perfectly good plants during lockdown and providing them to London’s plant lovers. GreenElfTrees have partnered with a top-quality Christmas Tree grower from the South West to supply families with their perfect piece of Christmas cheer. You can even buy natural decorations to put on your tree – both beautiful, and good for the environment.
They offer something for everyone – from cut trees to pot-grown, there’s even a helpful guide on their website for you to decide which tree is right for you. Their trees are all sourced from the UK, it minimises travel miles and GreenElfTrees offset their delivery team’s carbon emissions. Need to dispose of your tree? A ‘Responsible Tree Removal Service’ is in place to compost or re-purpose it – one less worry for you!
A little kindness goes a long way and Green Elf Trees are helping those that need it. The Delivery Team are made up of out-of-work musicians and entertainers who would normally be working through the Christmas period. Also, each order will supply a £3 donation to any one of the three charities you choose – Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, Dogs Trust and Shelter.
The Green Elf Trees are ready and waiting to help you on your journey to a more sustainable Christmas. Check out their website for all that they have to offer, and keep an eye on their Instagram for instant updates!
